Positive Effects of Technology

Have you ever thought about the effect technology has on society? Technology has a major impact on people’s lives all over the world. The world has had a number of technological advances over the years. Some of the technological advances include: cell phones, computers, cars, trains, planes, and other technology-invested items and models. Although, there are positive effects of technology, there are also negative effects. However, you must be aware of how much technology you utilize on a day to day basis. Technology is the use of people, objects, and tools to simplify the world around them. The amount of technology in the world has increased dramatically in the most recent years. With technology becoming more prevalent, it is improving the quality of life, helping people to function better, save time, and a plethora of other things. With technology improving medically, is it important that patients get their suggested vaccines such as, influenza, tetanus, meningococcal, and the human papillomavirus vaccine. In 1886, the first car was invented, in 1804, the first train was invented, and in 1903, the first plane was invented. With these different means of transportation, it allowed people to travel at a reasonable amount of time. Since cars, trains, and planes are being improved daily, people are now able to listen to music, watch a movie, play games, travel with heavy luggage, and more. With vehicles like minivans, these are used for a great cause to better the community by transporting things to different locations. Technology has also improved communication and has improved education systems all over the world: “Education is the backbone of every economy. Many schools have started integrating educational technologies in their schools with a great aim of improving the way students learn. Technologies like smart whiteboards, computers, mobile phones, iPads, projectors, and internet are being used in classrooms to boost students moral to learn.” (Ramey, Karehka.) Having these amazing factors available, students can learn from teachers all over the world, while sitting at home in their pajamas, and in an environment that is suitable for them.
There is a growing access to the different means of transportation. In the past, people used to walk and ride bikes to get from place to place. Transportation has a major effect on today’s society. Nowadays, it takes just a few minutes to get on the bus, catch an uber, lyft, or taxi. This is helpful to people who do not own vehicles and people who cannot drive. With people carpooling in taxis, ubers, and lyfts saves the world from pollution.

  1. I totally agree, the technology of today is amazing. We have robots to sweep our floors and cars that can literally drive themselves. Who knows what is going to come next. The phones we can fit in our pockets are more powerful than full size computers ten years ago. Our computers are getting fast and faster and can store more and more information. A really cool innovation that has come up in the past 5 years is vertically farming, we are going to need this in the future because the world may become over populated. Its when they build a sky scrapper and put levels of hydroponic systems that grow plants like kale and spinach. These systems will probably be able to grow any type of crop in the next ten years at the pace technology moves. I liked your blog it was well written.

  2. Technology is a fascinating thing when you really think about it. Normally we are told how technology is ruining our world and we need to distance ourselves from it, but people forget the advantages that it really gives us. You mentioned the use of technology in schools and I personally think that it is a great way to get students to interact with each other and with what they are learning. Whether it be research on laptops, apps on iPads, or group computer games such as Kahoot!. For places such as hospitals and police stations, technology has made numerous impacts on the work conducted there. And overall it is amazing how we can look something up and find a result in the matter of 10 seconds. Technology has definite benefits, but I also see the negative impacts that it has brought along such as hacking, cyber bullying, less face-to-face interaction, etc.

  3. This is a very interesting topic to talk about. Most people, usually talk about the negative aspects of technology. I agree with what you said about technology and how much we used them on a daily basis. For example, we use our cell phones all the time for social media. Social media is helpful because we can connect with people all over the world. I also agree with what you said about education and technology. Technology is very important for education because it will help students want to learn the information. Finally, I agree with transportation and technology. Technology has improved transportation because now, it is easier for anyone to find a ride from place to place. I agree with your blog and how technology has really changed everyone’s lives in our society.
